Do you shop on Amazon.com?
For our supporters who use Amazon.com there are a couple of unique ways you can help us bring hope!
1. Smile.Amazon.com This is Amazon's giveback initiative. They will donate .5% of every purchase made to Christ In Action when you start at smile.amazon.com and select Christ In Action as your charity. It's as simple as that. Everytime you shop Amazon either start at smile.amazon.com or, before you check out, switch to smile.amazon.com - your account, cart, lists, and everything else is the same, the only difference is that by adding "smile" you'll be helping us bring hope! Now, .5% may not sound like a lot, but as more and more people begin using this tool (which doesn't cost anything extra) to support us we have seen the donations we receive from Amazon increase almost every quarter!

2. Wishlists! If you shop Amazon you're probably familiar with wishlists. Well, we have one... actually we have two!
One is a list of supplies we need for deployment (everything from plates and cups to chainsaw gear and radio communication) - this list is updated daily while we're deployed. If you look at it while we aren't deployed you'll see things that we need for our next deployment (supplies that are currently low or out) or equipment that would allow us to do more and better while we are deployed.
The second list is what we need at headquarters (everything from paperclips and pens to computers and monitors, and of course, coffee). These are things that we will have to buy one way or the other, but if you'd rather give something tangible instead of just giving cash, these are really practical things that we currently need in our office.
Want your friends to be able to help us too? Use this link to share about our wishlists on Facebook, or just just post this link: christinaction.com/Amazon on your favorite social media outlet so everyone can help us bring hope!
